“Beholding the infinite tasks of truth, we pause,–wait on God.” (Science and Health, page 323)
It often seems like there is so much to accomplish, so much to understand, so much to know to feel a sense of achievement as well as peace. We can get mesmerized and overwhelmed by what feels unconquerable or not within our abilities.
Well, let’s not forget the pause. Yes, we see these infinite tasks of truth—the endless and progressive unfolding of goodness—but should we let this awareness make us feel panicked or in a rush to get ourselves through to the end of the race, to some final result where all things will be clear and complete? Don’t forget that pausing is heaven. It is grateful peace, and in this peace is the next right and reasonable step revealed.
If we wait on God—rest our busy heads and busy lives upon God and His Love and Truth—we have adopted the perfect stance to receive sustenance, renewing energy, focus, clarity and true guidance rather than willful motion based on worry not wisdom.
You can achieve all that God would have you achieve! He is calling you into a better understanding of the grand possibilities of your Life each day. Stop and listen. Love doesn’t overwhelm us or confuse us. It leads comfortably and cares for us as God unfolds our perfect way, our perfect day, in His perfect time.
